We’ve learned a lot about what it takes to achieve steady career growth around the Telecom Consulting office. One of the most important things we’ve discovered is that certain underrated skills are essential when it comes to earning promotions. Here are a few of these overlooked abilities, all of which we’re doing our best to refine.
Being open to feedback is one trait that enhances anyone’s professional prospects. We’ve always emphasized this as part of the Telecom Consulting ethos, and we take it a step further by actually implementing what we learn from colleagues and supervisors. Getting honest feedback helps us identify weak areas we might not notice otherwise.
Accountability is another vital quality for anyone who wants to earn regular promotions. In our experience, this trait doesn’t limit itself to our own efforts. Being accountable also means being reliable to our teammates, so that we’re always available when they need help. Top decision makers tend to notice when we’re always willing to offer assistance.
Strong focus is also a key element in moving a career forward. We carve out time for potentially distracting things such as checking email so we can direct our energies on our most pressing tasks.
We keep these attributes in mind as we work to advance our careers. Find more of our tips for securing promotions by liking Telecom Consulting on Facebook.
